Team Snyders

The Snyder’s Lures Pro Staff is a hand-picked group of fisherman that Snyder’s Lures has chosen to work closely with. As a part of the Pro Staff, these fisherman spend hundreds of hours on the water, and are extremely knowledgeable with the Snyder’s Lures product line. We are proud to have them as part of our “Family”.

Brian Koshenina

I’m Brian koshenina, owner of Muskies and More Guide Service located in Burnsville Minnesota.

As a professional guide I need to be able to count on the equipment I use. There is nothing worse than seeing a customer lose their “catch of a lifetime” due to poor quality equipment, especially when it comes to lures. I have used countless brands of lures over the years and nothing and, I mean “nothing” stands up to the abuse of everyday use like Snyder’s Lures.

Chris Rivers

If you see Chris Rivers at the lake or a bait shop stop and get a few pointers because chances are Chris will know exactly how to catch them. Chris is a walking “how to” book on how to catch fish, big fish!

Chris has been fishing most of his life for almost every species in the Midwest but tournament Bass fishing is Chris’s true calling.

With over 39 years of competitive fishing under his belt Chris has made a name for himself by consistently boating big fish for tournament wins!

Matt Ress

My Name is Matt Ress and I hail from Grantsburg, WI.

I am Married with two daughters and our whole family fishes. Odie our beloved dog goes as well

I have been chasing fish for 42 years. My favorite fish to chase is Bass, then Crappies followed by Walleyes. But, it’s hard to turn down Big Sunnies. I have fished for Bass, Muskie and Walleye competitively. But, what I enjoy most is when I get to go out after work and just evening fish. Which I get to do about 200+ days a year at minimum.

Sam Souter

My name is Sam Souter. I am 17 years old and live in Madison South Dakota with my 2 two younger brothers, my mom and Dad, and my 2 labs.

I have been fishing, hunting, and been in the outdoors  as far as I can remember. I moved to South Dakota in the fall of 2016. Depending on the time of year every weekend, I go ice fishing, bowfishing , open water fishing or duck hunting. I enjoy fishing for anything, but what really gets me going is chasing jumbo perch, walleyes, crappies and big gills.

Now that I moved to South Dakota there is a lot less of the sun fish and crappies but a ton of jumbo perch, walleyes and Big pike.  Some day I would like to guide fishing and possibly own my own guiding service.

I am excited to keep living and loving my life on the water and working with Snyders handcrafted lures.

Alex Keranen

I’m Alex Keranen from Nashwauk Minnesota. I have a passion for hunting, fishing or just the outdoors!  

My favorite fish to catch is Smallmouth bass and Walleye when at our cabin on Lake Vermilion. I’ve been hunting and fishing since I was only 2 years old. I think nothing is better than watching a Muskie follow your bait, or the tug of a big walleye on your rod. I fish at our cabin on Lake Vermilion or around my hometown every week during open water chasing what ever looks to be biting. I hunt a lot of the year too, from chasing grouse or waterfowl up to chasing big whitetails!

Mitchell Kettner

My name is Mitchell Kettner. I am 19 yrs old and live in Glencoe Mn with my brother, sister, Mom, and Dad. I am currently attending South Dakota State University. #gojacks

I’ve been fishing all over Minnesota, South Dakota and parts of Canada since i’ve been able to hold a rod’n reel. I enjoy fishing, hunting, helping out on the family farm and hanging out on the lake with my friends. I enjoy chasing whatever swims in fresh water especially big walleyes and big South Dakota jumbo perch! I cannot wait to see what the future holds with Snyder’s Lures this is a great company with great quality lures and great customer service.

Amanda Elms

My name is Amanda Elms. I grew up on the Minnesota/South Dakota border in the small town of Chokio. From a very young age to the present day, I have spent all the time I could in the outdoors, either by fishing and hunting with my family, or just by enjoying the great outdoors.
Snyder Lures has been a staple in my ice bag for years as they are always developing innovative designs that are extremely effective on all types of species and presentations. 

Nick Elms

I grew up in Waukenabo Minnesota fishing and hunting on the western slopes of the South Dakota Coteau Prairie as well as the northern lakes region of North Central Minnesota with family residing in both regions.
I developed a great passion early on for trophy class pan fish and particularly giant “Jumbo” perch and “747” Bull bluegills and was fortunate in being in two prime regions to develop an expertise to locate and encounter these rare and fragile specimens!

Justin Casanova

I grew up in the small town of Ramona, South Dakota.
When I was younger I never really enjoyed being at the lake. I fell in love with fishing and the outdoors when I was 17. The one thing that made me fall in love with the sport was a night where I sat on a road bed along side a lake  with an older gentleman listening to all of his stories about how much fishing he used to do when he was younger. Being able to share that moment with him, and catching a bunch of fish while doing so made me go crazy for fishing. To me, it’s not always about catching a bunch of fish, it’s about the memories you make with those along your side!

Dalton Benage

Hey all, my name is Dalton Benage.

My passion for the outdoors stared at a young age when my dat would take me out hunting and fishing near Cedar Mills Minnesota where I grew up. Some of my fondest memories with my dad were fishing for black and white crappie on the various small lakes. 

Nate Edwards

My name is Nate Edwards. I grew up in SE South Dakota around some of the best lakes in the south part of the state. I have always been passionate about fishing. You will always find me at least once on a lake every week or maybe more. I’m here to showcase how Snyders Lures have helped me be successful on soft and hard water!

Cooper Anderson

My name is Cooper Anderson and I grew up in Madison South Dakota and have been outdoors for as long as I can remember. I started turning my hobby in to more of a career once I hit high school and now I can’t get enough! My favorite species to target has to be big walleyes with small mouth bass not far behind. From session to season I spend most all of my free time either fishing open water, ice or in a layout blind waiting on some ducks and geese to get to the feed.
